Ask a questionQ & A
What if God is not real?
Thank you for your interesting question.
We aim to answer each question from the Bible.
The interesting thing here is that the Bible never assumes that God may not exist. It is given as a fact that there is a God. Consider the first line of the Bible:
In the beginning, God (Genesis 1:1).
I believe that the Bible is God's word to us. It states that there is nothing before God. God has always been.
Now consider some of Jesus lasts words to be found in the Bible:
"I am the Alpha and the Omega, the first and the last, the beginning and the end" (Revelation 22:11)
Here Jesus is saying that he has also, just like God the Father, always existed, that He is also God. He says that “surely I am coming soon" (Revelation 22:20).
Jesus will come back one day and everyone will see that he is God.
What IF this were not true? Well then we would have no accountability or reason to live with purpose. I believe the meaning of life is tied up in knowing and enjoying God. Without God, without hope of a new life in heaven, what is the point? You ask the right questions.
I agree with the Bible that there is a God. I hope in time you can too.
I do hope this general answer to your question goes some way to helping you find peace with God through Jesus Christ our Lord. If you want to know more about what Jesus has done for you please watch the video on the main part of our site: www.lookingforGod.com
